Doris is an amazing part of the team with Dr. Menendez! She joined the team in 1999 as Financial/Insurance Coordinator and has been doing a fantastic job ever since then. Doris came to Palm Harbor from Pennsylvania, where she graduated from the Lyons Technical Institute for Dental Assisting in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania in 1987.

Doris is extremely detail oriented and is passionate about helping patients understand their insurance and payment options. She has three Children Sara who also works with Dr. Menendez as a Dental Assistant, David and Madison.

Doris’ greatest joy is being a proud mother to her wonderful family. During her time off she loves fishing, walking, kick boxing, watching football and the company of her three grand puppies.

Doris says, “Working with patients on an individual basis to help achieve their goals is something I take a lot of pride in. Assisting patients with their often complicated insurance benefits is one way I help them to receive the dental care they deserve. It is truly an honor to help those families who have chosen us as their oral healthcare providers. I value this opportunity whole-heartedly.”
